Support SSL connection to Redis instances hosted as PaaS in public clouds such as Azure.
At this time, StackExchange.Redis is the only .Net library I can find that supports SSL connections to Azure Redis. I imagine others will follow suit. It would be useful to have SSL connection available in ServiceStack as well. Thanks.
SSL Support was added to ServiceStack.Redis in v4.0.33. We’ve alsocreated a new Getting Started page for connecting ServiceStack.Redis with Azure Redis at:
@Arup There's nothing specific about it limiting it to Azure, should work with any SSL session. If it's using an unrecognized SSL Cert then you'll may need to implement your own SSL validation check by specifying: RedisConfig.CertificateValidationCallback
Is SSL connection to Redis using ServiceStack or StackExchange only limited to azure hosting? We are considering using Redis as a caching platform for crm data but encryption is a must.

Yes I find that ServiceStack's API is better than StackExchange's but the lack of SSL connection becomes a showstopper
